English 1102 Baby Development Project
Transcript of English 1102 Baby Development Project
Have sexual intercourse every other day during fertile period.
Smoking and drinking too much coffee or alcohol can impair a woman and a man's fertility.
Take prenatal vitamins and appropriate doses of folic acid. A procedure for treating infertility
Sperm that are "washed" and concentrated are placed directly in the uterus.
This is done in a doctor's office or fertility clinic. A process by which an egg is fertilized by sperm outside of the body and then transferred into the women's uterus.
Involves taking fertility medications to stimulate the ovaries.
Both infertile men and women benefit. Benefit women who can no longer produce their own eggs.
Another women undergoes in vitro fertilization and donates her egg to the infertile mom-to-be.
Women give birth to children that are not biologically their own. Already made embryos given to infertile women.
Involves taking fertility medications.
Embryo adoption is similar to actual adoption except it takes place at the cellular stage. Month One The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin is produced only in pregnant women. Getting an ob-gyn that you trust and like is important at this stage because this will be the person going through the entire pregnancy, labor, and delivery. It is normal for ob-gyns to not schedule an appointment until the 8th to 12th week period. Most mother-to-be's will get a blood test done by a nurse and then won't get an appointment again until the due date and an ultrasound test is given. Month Two Sufficient sleep is a necessity now because of elevated progesterone levels, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and increased blood volume.
Food-borne illnesses in mothers can cause miscarriages or birth defects.
The cervical canal seals off the uterus for protection through the development of a mucous plug. Month Three The first prenatal visit happens at this time.
Get familiarized with family health history and review medical records. A genetic counselor normally comes in at this stage to talk about the whether the benefits of having test done outweigh the possible health risks.
A healthcare provider will thoroughly examine the mother-to-be with internal examination, breast exam, blood test, blood pressure and weight checks, and urine test. Month Four If the mother is 35 or older, a amniocentesis screening test is recommended to test for down syndrome. The side effect however is a possible miscarriage. Month Five Month Six A second trimester screening test is given by a health care provider to measure the alpha-fetoprotein levels and the inhibin-A levels. Mommy-to-be's can now find out if their babies are at risk for neural tube defects. If abnormal results are present, more tests are required and a health care provider talks about the risks and advantages of tests. At this stage of pregnancy is a good time to begin searching for a pediatrician for the child.
An ultrasound is received by a health care provider and used to examine the umbilical cord, placenta, and amniotic fluid. Braxton Hicks contractions may start occurring. If contractions become more intense, painful, or frequent, contact a health care provider immediately. This may be a sign of preterm labor. A prenatal test is done at this time, a glucose screening test. It checks for gestational diabetes Sleep gets difficult the closer mother-to-be's get to delivery. Doctors recommend pregnant women sleep on their side and placing a pillow between the knees to relieve pressure. Month Seven It would be beneficial to take a childbirth class at a local community center or hospital to learn all about being delivery and what to expect after. Previous blood tests measured the Rh factor. If the baby has it present, it can have jaundice or anemia.
A doctor can give a Rh immune globulin vaccine at 28 weeks and again after delivery. Month Eight A health care provider may recommend a blood test to check for iron deficiency.
In the decision of breastfeeding or formula feeding, a talk with a health care provider or lactation consultant is recommended before a decision is made. A health care provider will monitor blood pressure, urine, and any swelling that develops. It can be a sign of preeclampsia. That causes high blood pressure and protein in the urine and can affect the fetus. Month Nine Weekly visits to doctor as necessary.
An internal exam is given to determine if cervical effacement or dilation has begun.
If discharge occurs, a health care provider should be notified.
A sign or labor is the rupture of the amniotic sac.
Some women have to have their water broken by a health care provider to speed up or start labor. Labor and Delivery If a women does not go into labor within a week of her due date, the health care provider recommends a few test to make sure the baby is still healthy.
If necessary, a health care provider may induce labor by rupturing the membranes.
Some women don't have natural birth, some deliver via cesarean section. Labor and Delivery Average length of labor is between 12 to 18 hours.
The length of labor is because of the time it takes for the cervix to dilate.
Three stages of labor;
1st stage: latent and active phase
2nd stage: Complete dilation of the cervix
3rd stage: Delivery of the placenta Labor and Delivery In order to alleviate pain, epidurals and spinal blocks are given by an anesthesiologist.
There seems to be more risks than benefits but it does relieve the pain associated with childbirth. Types of Births C-Section Surgery Water Birth Natural Births A surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through an incision in the abdomen and in the uterus. Childbirth that occurs in water.
It is believed that it is the more relaxed, less painful experience. Multiple Births This is birth to more than one child and can be done at home, in water, through c-section, or natural at a health facility. Birth with the minimized use of medical intervention and the use of anesthetic medications and surgical interventions. Episiotomy Surgical cut in the perineum made just before delivery to enlarge your vaginal opening.
It is actually better to have a natural tear than a episiotomy. Roujauna Hylton
